Our September meeting will touch on something that most of us deal with on a regular basis – SQL Server. Robert Davis will join us to talk about those things that will help developers work better with DBAs and by association, vise versa. See the abstract of the talk and Robert’s bio below.
Please note that the meeting is the 2nd Monday of the month due to the holiday.
Title: What DBAs Wished Developers Knew About Working with SQL Server
SQL Server is a complex platform that is often contradictory and counter-intuitive. You have probably heard your DBA say “it depends” so often that you have wondered if the DBA even knows the answers. There are some fundamental truths in SQL Server that when understood make working with SQL Server a lot easier or at least more logical.
Here are the things DBAs wished developers understood about working with SQL Server. These concepts will help you understand why good queries sometimes go bad … and why the cause it’s not always what it seems.
Robert is a Sr. Product Consultant and Chief SQL Server Evangelist for Idera Software. Previously, he was the Program Manager for the SQL Server Certified Master Program in Microsoft Learning. He was also a Sr. Production DBA at Microsoft with more than 12 years’ experience with SQL Server — author of Pro SQL Server 2008 Mirroring — writer for SQL Server Magazine — Microsoft Certified Master: SQL Server 2008 — Speaker/trainer.
